We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again and again.
Keep it simple!
Every year we spot a few fabulous community parties with 10 barbeques, bouncy castles and the local celebrity. BUT the vast majority of Street Feasts are small and friendly occasions for a few neighbours.
10 people on a couple of picnic blankets on the green is a Street Feast. 15 people around 2 tables on a pavement is a Street Feast. Coming together, whatever the size, is the essence of Street Feast.
It’s not the size that matters, it’s the ‘getting out and getting it started’ in your community that matters most.
I’ve always found that the most rewarding of events have been those small intimate occasions when a few households have come together, everyone has met everyone, the organiser(s) have had a chance to relax, and people have left looking forward to the next one. So please don’t make your Street Feast a huge hassle for yourself.
Here’s a few photos from past Street Feasts if you don’t believe me!
